Do you remember that dream you had, where the sound chips from the beloved games consoles of your youth all got together and formed a Weezer tribute band? Yeah? No? OK. That dream is about to come true whether you had it or not.
The songs on this compilation have mostly been created using original videogame hardware running home-brew software, and vary radically in style, from minimal 'one man and his Game Boy' compositions to 8-bit inspired full band performances. Pterodactyl Squad proudly presents the music of Weezer as you have never heard it before.

Weezer - The 8-bit Album
Who knew the song that Rivers Cuomo wrote could sound any geekier that they already were? If you like the actual songs of Weezer than I think you should give this album a try, because what has been done here is really great, even though it does not always sound 100% Super Pro. Various artists here come together to do their own 8-Bit influenced versions of Weezer songs. That all said though, I think I personally have almost had my fill of Weezer enjoyment. The good thing about what the actual band Weezer has does with their work is they have crated a large number of songs that almost anyone can enjoy because they aren't trying to be too complex with the notes they play or really avant-gard stylistically. It looks to me though that mostly what the real Weezer act does is make themselves look like comical geeky fools in public by making this kind of geeky Goof-Rock to gain hordes of not too picky fans, and the thing about this scenario though is their original songs are just good enough that they can make all of that hype work for them AND that makes them look 1000 times smarter than almost every other act that works in the Pro side of the music industry.
